Trailhead to the Old West!
Thanks for saddlin’ up with OWDR History Riders Radio on the Internet to wander/wonder along some memory trails in the Great American Old West. Doc Boyle has selected events from the pages of OWDR to craft a series of weekly radio shows; collections word-bytes about the people, places and events that have shaped our modern perception of the Old West. Historical hors d’ oeuvres intended to be enjoyed on their own merit, or to psyche you up to go out and find more of this complex and wonderful story.
Thing is, history ain’t always all neat and pretty, so don’t get all riled up about something we ride by on these old mind trails. Unhappy things will soon slip behind us again onto our backtrail; forget ‘em if you need to. Just remember, the past is done. What counts, is what we do with the knowledge and understanding of our past, to improve our future. Other thing is, you need to be careful here, a person can learn things…
Each calendar week, as the current year’s show comes on line
last year’s show for that week is deleted.
